> This is our most significant release yet. Here are some highlights:
> - The PharoVM is now based on Spur, the new memory management, and it
> brings with it a 35% speedup!
> - A new unified foreign function interface (UFFI) replaced NativeBoost to
> provide a strong Spur-compatible framework for interfacing with the outside

> - The Glamorous Toolkit now includes the GTDebugger to offer a moldable
> infrastructure that allows the developer to customize the debugger deeply.
> - The underlying Reflectivity mechanism has reached maturity with multiple
> pieces coming together to empower developers to instrument their own
> systems. For example, we now have breakpoints implemented as just a simple
> extension of this mechanism.
> - QualityAssistant is now part of the image to provide live feedback
